(Time to use the Categories.
Instead of Personal,
I'll use Deviant Events.)
I have change the title to: "My After Report"
instead of "My Aftermath."
Because the word "Aftermath"
sounds like an inappropriate word meaning something bad happened: www.google.ca/search?site=&…I will not mark people and usernames, because this can send them to this journal link being mentioned and I don't them to see my anger unleashed, I apologize... I'm sorry if I'm very angry on this journal. But the good news is GeekFest Montreal went well and ok.
GeekFest Montreal 2015 I'm Going to Attend(Journal 97) The beginning.

Hello ladies and gentlemen.
I'm going to attend GeekFest Montreal 2015, for 2 days Saturday and Sunday. It has a nice low price tickets for 2 days, seems to be a good deal. This is my first time heading there.
I'm going there by myself lone wolf. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lone_wolf_(trait)
The con seems to be underrated with less people attending like 500 people during the past years of that con (I know that's a lot of people attending, but 1000 or 10 000 is MORE THAN A LOT!) The con seems to be kind of like a mini con. Kind of like similar to Toy Con Montreal 2015 (Oh Toy Con 2015 was good and
GeekFest Montreal 2015.
November 7 and 8, 2015.
Hello ladies and gentlemen, I'm back from GeekFest Montreal 2015.
In the end of those 2 days. It was an ok convention. A little plain, small and basic. I have enjoyed it. Better than my last bucking convention which scars me for the rest of my life.
GeekFest Montreal 2015 helped me escape and was a better experience.
It was ok and it went well.I'm going to write my after report right now:
First day waking up in the morning eating breakfast, changing to my Lucina (Fire Emblem: Awakening) (crossplay male to female)
cosplay. I'll be wearing a cloak hood (from my Arno Dorian (Assassin's Creed: Unity)
cloak hood) to go with my Lucina cosplay instead of the blue long hair Lucina wig. I bought my bow and arrow just like my Ratonhnhaké ton (Assassin's Creed III)
cosplay in Otakuthon 2014 (Otakuthon 2014 was better.) One of my relatives want to talk about GeekFest Montreal 2015, being safe and attempting to escape the dark past from the horrible convention. She was giving me tips and advice about "friends," being safe and being yourself, where was the location of the place, family and best friends caring about me. They even suggest me to wear regular clothes to blend in to not be seem by people while walking to a convention in public with a cosplay on. So I listen to her tips and advices which was really helpful.
So I ready my equipment, wear my cosplay inside my regular clothes (good for undercover lol.) The location was kind of far. But I made it there safe. (The place is like a school, even though it is...) I went lone wolf by myself en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lone_wol…)
So I started putting my regular clothes inside my medium bag and was putting on some of my other equipment for my cosplay such as gloves, etc...
I went to register
, and it was done.
I went to the weapon's check,
apparently there was an issue with my bow. So the weapons' master she has to edit the bow. And she did.
During while walking, apparently my bow string broke. Oh dear... :l
So I decide to take some photos of cosplayers (I kind of shy out a little bit, because of the whole dark past from the horrible convention on what has happened which traumatized me.)
I shop around and buy some stuff, eat and drink.
I asked some of the staffs where the locations are for particular places to go to such as the cafeteria, panels, etc... since I'm not familiar with this building.
Before I was going to the cafeteria, missmystica
met me and said "hi" to me. Hey she remembers me, and she is in this con! I'm surprise that she still recognizes me. I started telling her see you later since I'm going to go eat which I will be right back.
This is something that I actually want to spit out... To be honest, I WAS ACTUALLY THIS CLOSE OF LEAVING THIS CON, OR NOT COMING BACK TOMORROW SUNDAY ON THE LAST DAY.
Mostly because of some of the rude people around which was making me want to give up and leave and never come back to any nerd / geek culture convention ever again. 1. But I decide to push myself to die trying of being myself.
2. My family, best friends, friends, people who support me, fans, watchers care about me and are there for me.
3. If there is a problem, I'll let the staffs know and the people that care about me.
4. And I believe that:

I continue doing the same thing that I like to do that makes me happy in cons. It's just a hobby I'm not causing harm. missmystica and I started talking. We talked about the con, introduce ourselves, our interests and hobbies. I even told her about what happened to me in that dark past from last con. :C And she explain to me about situations and stuff that happened to her. :C
She introduce me to her little brother evilegend308
(he doesn't have a deviantART.) www.online-instagram.com/user/…
He was a nice shy guy just like me. We're both shy.
So we hangout and she bring me to see a cool Chinese photographer
to his photoshoot room
. I decide to wait and sign in for the photoshoot. droophotographer
and I introduce ourselves, started talking and he was doing the photoshoot while I was doing poses with my cosplay. He was an open minded, friendly, nice photographer person to talk too. It is an honor of having a photoshoot with him and meeting him for the first time. Thank you very much droophotographer. You're a great photographer.
and her little brother evilegend308
we started talking, hanging out and stuff.
I saw Zato555, (I remember him in Otakuthon 2014 and Otakuthon 2013 seeing him cosplay as Goku (Dragon Ball Z)
and Ryu (Street Fighter.))
He was hanging out with them.
I continue doing the stuff that I like to do.
I was bored... So I decide to go to the Masquerade
which the 2 of them and him went there. I started watching it, it was nice, cool and funny. Good masquerade even though I'm not that much interest into the masquerade show.
I also met some famous cosplayer cosrouge
known as Darkarnival Butler www.facebook.com/Darkarnival-B…
She was nice, open minded and friendly. I decide to take a photo of her. I really like her Midna (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess)
cosplay, she looks so awesome and super! Go Midna! One of my most favorite characters of all times!
Throughout the con I took some photos, shop around and buy some stuff, eat and drink, I hangout and talk to my friend missmystica
and her brother Evilegend308.
In the end of day, I decide to head home which it is getting darker. I went with missmystica, Evilegend308
which they're taking the same metro with me. But apparently the metro was down! So we had to get out of the train and started walking to the cities. I went with them and we were walking to go to a restaurant to eat
(I actually wanted to go home and eat, but since the metro was down I decide to go with them.)
We eat at this pizza restaurant (I never been there before.) We eat, drink and talk. It was very fun and they care about me. It is an honor of them! I really enjoy it and it was good talking to each other. Such good friendly, nice and open minded people that care about me.
I went home since the metro was fixed already for 1 hour? Or 2 hours? Thanks to missmystica
telling me the location to go to the metro around the cities. Thank you very much missmystica, it is an honor of you. Talking to you, fixing my bow, hanging out with you, etc... It was a good and smart move
to go with the 3, if I didn't I would be lost around the cities. It was also a good and smart move
that I have my regular clothes on than my cosplay on which was inside my regular clothes, imagine dealing with these stupid rude people in the cities with your cosplay, that would suck. I'm glad that I was wearing my regular clothes on. Thanks to one of my relatives.
actually walk with his Gohan (Dragon Ball Z)
cosplay around the cities in public, wow so epic, (the people reactions wow...)
I decide to change cosplay to Arno Dorian (Assassin's Creed: Unity,)
because I went ashamed over my Lucina cosplay
and because of the rude people around. I gave up, that really sucks.
I shouldn't have listen to these rude people. But to be myself and care and think about the people that care about me: My family, best friends, friends, people who support me, fans, watchers, etc...
So I went to back to the con which was the last day.
is not here today, because she was busy and stuff, so she couldn't come here on Sunday. But I understand but I hope to see her once again.
But her brother evilegend308
is here. He talked to me about droophotographer,
that he still does photoshoots, especially with other different cosplays.
So I decide to go in for another photoshoot.
I met droophotographer
once again. I decide to do another photoshoot with him. I talk to him about personal life stuff
and what has happened to me from my dark past con where I suffered. He explain me tips and advices, and not to be shy but say what do you want to say instead of holding it or else you'll lose what you have to say. We talk about hobbies, etc.. Also his assistant was really friendly and nice. I bought the CD where all of my photos of my 2 cosplays are taking by droophotographer with his camera.
So I continued. I did the same thing that I like to do: Shop around, take photos, walk around, go to some panels I'm interesting in, etc...
========================================================================================================= I went to another panel, because I was bored. I went to the TheSw1tcher's panel (Two Best Friends Play.)
To be honest I never know it was actually them, I thought it was somebody else inspired by them. But it was actually them. They're famous. I'm surprise they're here. I don't know them that much, but I heard of their name channel on YouTube.
Bad bucking news, I feel ashamed. They were recording the panel on video and they already uploaded on YouTube.
Buck here comes the ignorance YouTube comments.
(I decide to not watch the video, since during the panel they ask me a few questions, I talk like I felt unsure. Because I am shy and quiet.)
But it's better to let it go and walk away, always be yourself and ignore the people who talk negative behind your back, they're all cowards.
(I'm not blaming them TheSw1tcher. I just hate the rude ignorance YouTube rude comments who hide behind their keyboards and their computer screens.)
Then I went to the MLP FiM panel hosted by flareflickerstudio
. The panel was good. I wanted to talk to flareflickerstudio,
but I shy out again.
So I left when the panel was done, then flareflickerstudio
started talking to me. We talked and stuff. It was nice of him of hosting the panel and checking on me if things are alright and stuff. It is an honor of him.
I continue doing the same stuff.
Also yesturday I didn't know it was her, but I met Karine Charlebois! kantharaen.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karine_C…
I was shy, but I talk to her and stuff and took a photo of her today. She work on a lot of old cartoons such as Gargoyles, Sagwa the Chinese Siamese Cat and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It was an honor of meeting her, she even went to the MLP FiM panel too. Woo hoo this is awesome!
In the end of day, I got completely bored so I decide to go to flareflickerstudio's panel
about nerd / geek reviews. The panel was good and ok. It was a very underrated panel, not a lot of people joined. Apparently there was technical difficulties, everyone left the room, it was only just me.
I went to see droophotographer
before I head home. I started talking and stuff. Having a picture of me and him and his assistant including him. It is an honor of him. I felt like it was getting late so I decide to head home...
I bought some stuff, patches, 2 hip flasks, a pin, the photos on the CD,
I even bought a red ocarina (The Legend of Zelda) my very own first instrument I buy
(I have an acoustic guitar at home.) And some other stuff too.I also met other famous guests, but I don't know them that much.
I took a couple of photos, because I shy out and there wasn't that much cosplayers. I will upload the photos later. GeekFest Montreal 2015
I'll give it a 6/10. It was ok. Plain, simple, basic, good. Better than the dark past horrible experience from last bucking con. It was a good escape and it made me felt better and healthy. I like it.Positives:
-Saturday hanging out with missmystica and evilegend308.-Enjoyed droophotographer's photoshoot and talking to him and her assistant.
-I like the MLP FiM panel.-Better than last bucking con.
-Bought some cool stuff.
-Met 2 famous guests that I'm interesting in.
-Bought a red ocarina (The Legend of Zelda.)-Eating dinner at a restaurant with missmystica and evilegend308 and Zato555. That was fun and that made my day.
-Some people take a photo of my Lucina cosplay.
The Negative, you know I should let this go and focus on the positive so I'll skip this one. There is another thing that bugs me, but I don't want to say it since there's no point. It has something to do with "understanding." But let it go...I guess that's pretty much it...I would like to thank missmystica, evilegend308, droophotographer, flareflickerstudio, juju2143, Zato555, cosrouge (Darkarnival Butler,) for making me enjoy this con. To myself and to my family, best friends, friends, fans, watchers, people who support me:Stay strong, stay inspired, stay positive, stay safe, stay professional, stay gold and take care!
